white house. he has helped advise president obama on some of his key foreign policy decisions, including drawing down the troops in afghanistan, ending the war in iraq, and also responding to some of the natural disasters that have occurred in recent years, including haiti, and japan. he is someone who has built up a lot of trust here in the white house. you heard that today when president obama talked about him, talked about how much he meant to the staffers here. we should also mention he was pictured in the situation room during the raid on osama bin laden, so this is certainly someone who is very close to the president and will be a key figure moving forward with this white house. andrea. >> thank you so much, kristen welker. david gregory here and pete williams joining us as well. autowe've seen good chiefs of staff and bad. some of the best. jim bakker, ken duberstein, leon panetta in times of trouble. >> howard baker certainly rescuing the ronald reagan second term from don regan, a bad chief of staff by all accounts. what is the pluses and minuses of denis mcdonough. he knows the

criminal conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we ruling. acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell. support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line. caller: i am confused because i am getting background noise or something. i want to ask about the benghazi situation. in the hearings the other da

, this was not the only interview, at least for president obama, where we learned a little new about him. he sat down with the new republic and talked about politics here in washington, and also talked about gun violence and talked about football, and some of the injuries that we've seen from representative concussions. he says i'm a big football fan, but i have to tell you, if i had a son, i'd have to think long and hard before i would let him play football." soledad. >> thank you, brianna. we'll talk with steve israel, and jack crow,e. we want to run those very comments that brianna was mentioning by him this morning. >>> other stories making news. john berman has that for us this morning. >>> a snowy, icy, rainy, sloppy commute for millions of americans this morning. the storm that coated the midwest in ice yesterday is heading north and could bring snow, freezing rain, and sleet. not a lot of fun to the northeast today. flights in and out of chicago, minneapolis, and st. louis were grounded on icy runways and check this out. firefighters shippi chipping a hydrant. frozen in time. new york went s
